DVUR KRALOVE, east Bohemia, A seven-year-old female rhinoceros was sent today to the British town of Port Lympne-Howlets from the zoological gardens in Dvur Kralove, zoo keeper Daniela Hofmanova told CTK.

"The animal weighs around 900 kilos and so the transport of such a robust animal and dangerous animal required special care," she said. The young rhinoceros is to genetically enrich the British breed.

"Today's act bears witness to the international cooperation of zoo gardens and reservations which gives hope to the protection of this rare and threatened species," she added.
